Inmate facing new charges after allegedly attacking corrections officers

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA - A jail inmate in Yakima is facing new charges in connection with assaults on two corrections officers last week. 26-year-old Gustavo Franco is accused of attacking a corrections officer who was conducting a routine security check Friday evening.
    
A probable cause statement says the officer was struck repeatedly in the face, resulting in bruises and a cut lower lip.
    
A second probable cause statement says Franco was then restrained and taken to an isolation cell where several hours later he assaulted a second corrections officer who was removing his wrist and ankle restraints.
    
Franco was initially arrested in connection with an assault and felony violation of a protection order.
